You have a 3 or 4 15mm bolts in the back of the hub. They are torqued very high and extremely difficult to remove. They are also easily rounded off. You need a snap on 1/2" drive inpact wobble 15mm socket and leave steering wheel unlocked so you can rotate wheel to get 2 of them at a time.

Removing the front rotors on my k3500 chevy truck

if you took the tire, brake caliper and everything off and you are replacing the rotors then spray some wd-40 or pb blaster around the lug nut bolts and the center and let it set and work into it. if you cant wiggle it off then take a regular hammer and smack the back of the rotor. sometimes the rust and brake dust will build up and cause it to stick.

How to replcae distributor cap and rotor on 1998 K3500 7.4L v8?

There are two screws to hold the cap on, remove them, and pull the cap off with the wires still on it. Then you will see the rotor on the post under the cap, this pull straight up and off. The new one slides right down in place. Then take one plug wire off at a time and put it on the same position on the new cap.

Doesn't really matter where number one wire goes as long as the firing order is in the correct order. I find it easier just to pull and put one plug wire on at a time.

1998 chevy silverado brake problem

Sound's like the ABS common problem. Chevy has a recall that say's to remove and clean the front speed sensors mateing surface of rust. I would try that before I started spending money. If you can do you own front brakes you can handle this. Good luck

The removal of rear brake drums on a 1998 chevy k3500

You should be able to just pull them off! If they are stuck on you may have to get them off by beating on them with a small sledge hammer. Sounds primitive, but thats how its done at the shop. Just hit it straight on the front to break the rust loose. Whatever you do...don't hit the wheel studs. They aren't fun to replace.

Noisy front wheel bearing

It is possible but i do reccomend changing the bearing races in the hub when you do it to prevent any premature wear on your new bearings. A new hub/rotor assembly will come with new races installed if that makes it any easier.
